The Cleveland State University women’s basketball team is off to a great start, with a record of 6-2 after its most recent 71-64 victory over Ohio University on Dec. 6.

The Vikings have just five games remaining in the year before they resume play on Jan. 4 with a conference game against Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

On Dec. 9, the Vikings traveled to Toledo University to play the Rockets, and then will take a short break as their next game isn’t until Dec. 17 at Illinois State University in Normal, Ill.

The team will stay in Illinois and travel 40 minutes northwest to Peoria, where they will face Bradley University.

The Vikings will play their last two games of 2017 back in Cleveland at the Wolstein Center, both of which are conference opponents.

The green and white will see Oakland University on Dec. 28 followed by the University of Detroit Mercy on Dec. 30.

Through the first eight games of the season, the lady Vikings are averaging 70.3 points per game, making 44.5 percent of their shots from the field and knocking down 36.0 percent of their attempts beyond the arc.

Additionally, they are shooting 72 percent from the free throw line, pulling down 36.3 rebounds, and averaging 13.9 assists per game. Junior Ashanti Abshaw is leading the way for the green and white averaging 22.5 points per game accompanied by 19 steals.

Senior Khayla Livingston is the Vikings next highest scorer averaging 13.6 points per game while shooting an impressive 88 percent from the free throw line.
